After a miscarriage, making the decision to try for another pregnancy can be difficult. It is natural to want to become pregnant again right away after going through the heartache of losing a baby. However, you should wait to attempt again until you are physically, as well as emotionally ready. You may want to check the site for information on trying to conceive after miscarriage, there’s lots of very useful information like how to boost your chances of getting pregnant, what you should and shouldn't do, what kind of food that actually boost your fertility, how to have a healthy pregnancy and so much more.

Firstly, I'm sorry to read about your loss.

Only you and your husband can decide when you feel the time is right to try for another baby. After my first loss, it was about a year before I really felt ready to try for another. Time is a great healer, and although the hurt will never fully go away, you'll find it easier to cope with. Good luck.

hi i had a ectopic pregnancy last july, i lost my right tube, i wanted to start trying again straight away but couldnt because of some of the medication i had, but started trying again as soon as i could and 5 months later i got pregnant again but had miscarriage, started trying again straight away and within weeks was pregnant again but sadly had another miscarriage at 7 weeks, i started trying again staright away as i really want another baby, it is really hard to get over but i think it makes it little easyer focusing on trying for another, only u will be able to tell when u feel ready again, hopefully will happen for us all soon, good luck

I also have PCOS and have had two preterm birth my first daughter was born at 22 weeks she lived for 27 minutes. my second daughter was stillborn at 25 weeks. Then I got pregnant once more and now I have my daughter she is 1 1/2 and the live of my life. make sure that in the first trimester that you take your metformin that is how I got to get past the first trimester. nothing will take the lost away but having a baby makes it a little better.

i don't think anything will ever really make the hurt go away completely, but when I got pregnant it did help.. it gave me something else to focus my energy into.. my doctor did, however, warn me about a phase of grieving that some women go through where they kind of obsess about having another baby. I got pregnant during that phase and i think that made losing my second baby a million times more difficult, because I hadn't overcome the first loss yet. I would just be careful, don't try until you're sure you're ready, just in case.. i would hate for anyone to go through what i went through. but i hope whatever you do choose works out for the best!

i had an tubal pregnancy last feb. I lost that tube. We have been trying so hard to get pregnant again. Yestreday I had another ectopic pregnancy. The doctor said I may not be able to get pregnant on my own now. I understand how you feel. My advice is to just try again. Just be aware of your body and how you feel. you don't want to have surgery. Enjoy life with your husband. Don't be afraid to try. We only live once. Good luck
